Sort of getting off to a later than usual start around here. Here's your Hump Day Sift, readers.
A- Obalesque discusses the problem of cheating teachers in America.
Reading this appalling surrender of integrity, I can’t decide which is worse — crooked cops or cheating teachers. In both cases, the very professionals supposedly sworn to provide care and protection for the citizens who pay the tab end up ripping them off and endangering them. A good case could be made for either one. Maybe we should have a poll.B- Political Cortadito discusses the results of yesterday's election in Doral.
Boria — who paints himself as a humble man who has nothing better to spend his riches on — won decidedly with a near and 11-point lead, 56 to 45 percent, looking like each man took the 30 percent won by Councilman Pete Cabrera in the first round and split it in half.C- Bark Bark Woof Woof has some thoughts on Jeb! Bush running for President in 2016.
The Evangelical minister praised God for his win at his victory party in the parking lot at Sedano’s on 58th Street, where his campaign office is. “Now the city will shine all over the world,” he said, and one has to wonder exactly what that means. Doesn’t Doral already shine internationally?
Even in the eyes of Democrats here in Florida, Jeb Bush was not a disaster as governor. He was able to work with Democrats in the legislature when they still had some clout in Tallahassee. That could be a problem for the Tea Party; they’re on the record as not being wild about former governors that are willing to work across the aisle (see Romney, Mitt). And of course there’s also the other rising star from Florida who would love nothing better than to make his move in 2016.
